The WERT works just like a full scaled filtration plant and applies many of the same principles as the City’s existing treatment plant. The trailer carries multiple diesel pumps and generators so it can remain fully self-sufficient in an extended emergency. When needed water will be pumped from a source, such as the Rogue River, and passed through a 4 stage filter system which will filter from coarse through smaller than 0.35 microns. Chlorine will then be added to the water prior to placing it into fold-able water storage containers where it will sit for 1 hour or more to disinfect. The water can then be pumped through a self contained distribution piping system to customer’s containers.
